Andrea Bennett at Travel and Leisure says that hotels are looking to fill beds by turning to value-added promotions such as free nights and reduced rates for advanced bookings.
However, some of the best deals are offered as part of the guest recognition programs of the big hotel chains. There are bargains a-plenty if you pay with points and some hotels are reducing the number of points redeemed for a similar quality room or are even upgrading.
Look for promotions and deals available to members only (even on former blackout dates). Pointmaven.com instructs you on how to maximize hotel points and to search by plan or destination. Flyertalk.com posts up-to-the-minute loyalty program news.

What you eat is important for colon health, according to Real Age. The fiber found in apples (pectin) appears to protect your colon from cancer-causing compounds. Choose cloudy over translucent juices because they contain more disease-fighting antioxidants.

Two of the most abused words in the English language are “financial planner.” Be warned that a number of professionals wear that title even though they shouldn’t--like insurance agents and stockbrokers.
When looking for a personal financial advisor, find one who accepts no commissions from product sales. Pay by the hour, a flat fee, an annual retainer, or a percentage of your assets.
Interview the person (this appointment should be free) to see if it is a right fit.
Consult as many sources as you can including those that can be found online.
However, if you find yourself unable to pay your bills, don’t hesitate to confer with a nonprofit credit-counseling agency for free or low-cost. Consider applying for public programs, also, to get over the hump.
